If you remember Fillet had a weird 10ish hours infection which lead to a huge pop-eye and near-death experience, in which you can find the whole story here:
It's been 5 days since I started the treatments and I promised an update so here it is;
I didn't want to bump (again) that thread because I don't need treatment help any longer so I rather not bring up my thread and drive the attention out of the people who need help.
His eye looks a bit less swollen and he started to eat 3 days ago, he is making bubblenests like mad because I made a 2 day treatment with a female in a floating QT tank inside his, so now he is a bubblenest freak haha :P
(Too bad Fillet, you pedophile, they are too young for you still!!!)
And I have a confession to make...
I was a bit ashamed of doing it so I kinda hide from the forum... On the first day of the treatment Fillet was dying, really, so desperate me and my mum put him on a wet cloth and we made a warm water + garlic mixture and with cotton buds we passed it over his eye... Looked like it "burned" the infection slightly and he got more active like it gave him a shock, that's when I got a few replies later and I rushed to the petshop to buy the stuff... I say I'm ashamed of doing that because you people said no to, so I didn't.. Later that day because the medicine was expired, I put him on water with garlic again, I cut the garlic into small pieces and put on his aquarium.. it stink garlic but I left the whole night.. His eye got really red but the infection was "gone" as the white ring around his eye, then I put the new medicine and 1 day later he started to eat...
I'm saying this because... I think, really, if I haven't do that, I think he wouldn't be with me now... And the photos I was posting was on a exactly angle you couldn't see my "mess" because when we put the cotton bud on his eye, we kinda took off the cloudy cover from his eye, but not completely, he was too tired for the procedure that we didn't force much on him, that's why he is having that "lid" hanging on his eye.. But it will fall off eventually (I hope)..
Well there, my conscience is clear.
And the photos;
(I just noticed he is having that worm thing on his mouth... idk for how long it's been in there but I haven't noticed before.. also he made a HUGE waste in 1 day... Should I be worried? It's like this one here:
Hmm.. I will continue the pop-eye treatment and not bother about that thing for the moment.. I can't afford to treat it for the time being.)
(I know the pics are quite bad but the medication is WAY too blue and slightly dense, so the pics gets bad).
